By the time of the Pannion War, Bluepearl was one of the Bridgeburners' last surviving mages. He and the other mages, Quick Ben, Spindle, Shank, and Toes, were often seen together talking with Captain Ganoes Paran.
After the Siege of Capustan, the Bridgeburners were secretly sent ahead to Coral to reconnoiter the Pannion Seer's city. They established their camp among the network of unmanned trenches and tunnels the Pannion Domin had built on the forested slopes north of the city. When Septarch Ultentha sent a company of Beklites and Urdomen to man the trenches, the mages prepared for combat. Bluepearl "loaned" Shank a spell for a ritual Shank designed to target the Seerdomin mage leading the company. When executed, it caused the Seerdomin's lungs to fill with water and drown.
During the Siege of Coral, Dujek sent the Bridgeburners into the city by Quorl under the cover of darkness. Their mission was to attack the keep of the Pannion Seer while the High Fist led the rest of the army into the city itself. Hedge and his sappers destroyed a tower with Moranth munitions to gain entrance to the keep while Picker's squad fought K'ell Hunters in the streets. Bluepearl was among the few Bridgeburners to survive the subsequent battle in the keep against the Seer's Urdomen.
After the battle, Dujek allowed Bluepearl and the remaining Bridgeburners to secretly retire as had been Whiskeyjack's wish. The mage went to Darujhistan where several of his comrades used their accumulated back pay to establish K'rul's Bar.
Bluepearl was a regular at K'rul's Bar in Darujhistan.
- Bluepearl: "Spindle will hold back on a sharper, Captain, with the mage's name on it."
- Toes: "Literally, and that makes all the difference, Spin being a wizard and all."
- Captain Paran: "Yes? And how often has it made the difference in the past, Toes?"
- Toes: "Well, uh, there’s been a bad string of, uh, mitigating circumstances—"
